Today I got to shoot my favorite Wedding Venue here in Smiths Grove. Elkins Grove is a beautiful location to say “yes” too. Complete with a pond and a barn in the middle of fields. So if you are planning to get married in 2017, check them out! ¬†http://elkinsgrove.weebly.com/ . You can also find them on FB.

Today I got to photograph 22 beautiful young women as part of an amazing event called:¬†“Operation, Princess Prom”. Volunteers of Crossland Community Church here in Bowling Green prepared for weeks, collected dresses, made flower corsages, volunteered their time and resources to make many¬†young ladies and their families extremely happy.

Helen Keller said: “Alone we can do so little; TOGETHER we can do so much.” ¬†¬†Without help* these girls may not have been able to attend prom this year. Without help they wouldn’t have had their hair and make-up done professionally. Without help they couldn’t have hired a photographer to freeze this once in a lifetime moment.

It takes a village to raise a child and a community to make a princess. Even though not all of their pictures will be posted here (confidentiality), I can promise you that each girl walked out as a princess today. And many people (including myself) with a satisfied heart and a big smile.

So dance away ,Cinderella.       DSC_7358

*Crossland Community Church serves close to 100 girls this prom season by providing dresses, shoes, restaurant gift cards, make-up and hair services to make this day nothing but wonderful for these young woman in need. So let’s do this again! Be the change you wish to see in this world. Get involved. Volunteer.

“… Love one another, as I have loved you.” (John 15:12)

Last Saturday I got to shoot an amazing event. Every year,the Bowling Green Assembly Corvette Club puts on a charity car show to support our local Human Society and Salvation Army. They spent weeks preparing, advertising and gathering sponsors, auction items and volunteers. Members of the club and local businesses give their time and money to love on pets and people while sharing their passion for beautiful cars.

As I prepare to write this, I ask myself what story should I tell? There are so many! There are the car owners and car makers that spend all their time working on amazing cars.The pride and joy of their work is written all over their faces. And it’s contagious!

Then there are members of the Humane Society who love on all those sweet animals, spending their own personal resources to do so.

All kinds of people bid on items they didn’t need nor know how to use (like a guitar), just to raise money. Some people outbid another party, just so they could turn around and give the item to the other person that bid!!

At the end of the day, thanks to the efforts of everyone involved, over $20,000 were raised!

You guys rock!
